Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016) Details

The Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016) is an upgraded version of the previously launched Galaxy J2 but is identical to the Galaxy J3 (2016) in terms of specs. Just to add a bit of flavour, the J2 (2016) has a couple of tweaks. The smartphone is available in white, gold and black colour variants and sports a refreshing design at the back. 
Platform and Features
The Galaxy J2 (2016) ensures users with the latest Android experience as the smartphone runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system out of the box. The device is unique in many ways, firstly the back panel features a new design where the logo is crafted, the camera module is surrounded by a notification panel which displays all the RGB colours which can be set according to your convenience. The device also comes with the S-bike mode that lets you ride without having to attend calls.  
Camera and Display
You can capture brilliant shots and record Full HD videos using the 8-megapixel rear camera that is paired with an LED flash to aid in low light. The Quick Launch feature ensures that you never miss out on any beautiful moment. On the front, the Galaxy J2 (2016) comes with a 5-megapixel camera that can be used for capturing selfies and also video calling via apps like Skype, Messenger, etc. The smartphone flaunts a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display that has deep contrast and reproduces vivid colours that pave the way for an enriched visual experience. 
Performance and Storage
Although the Galaxy device is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Spreadtrum chipset, Samsung has integrated the chipset with Turbo Speed Technology (TST) that automatically kills apps at the background to ensure smooth sailing. The J2 (2016) is coupled with 1.5GB of RAM that takes care of multitasking and along with TST ensures a lag-free smartphone experience. You needn't worry about storage as the Galaxy J2 (2016) comes with 8GB of internal storage space which can further be expanded via a microSD card to accommodate apps and your personal data. 
Battery and Connectivity
The device packs a Li-Ion 2,600 mAh battery that is enough for a normal user to last throughout the day. In terms of connectivity, there are options like 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and a microUSB 2.0 port. Equipped with the Ultra Data Saving Mode, it saves your 4G data usage by restricting background applications from consuming unnecessary data.

Does it have any hanging problems?
Yes, and I was able to use only for 2 days and now I have thrown it inside my storeroom. So, I advise you not to buy Samsung Galaxy J2 and even if they give you for free, then also don't accept it.

No. But yeah you may have the problem of lagging when playing high-end games. But for normal use, it's a good multi-tasker, and sometimes the camera hangs, whenever you reopen the app.
By nitansh.shrivastava25, 26 months ago
Mark Helpful (172)
No, simply use apps, it has no hanging problem. But if you play heavy games like Asphalt 8 and Nova, the high graphics games then there may be some hanging problems.
By rao.sdeva, 26 months ago
Mark Helpful (162)
Not really, because it has Exynos processor that is a great management of memory and task. But only one thing is that it takes some time to run a heavy application.
By harsh9971, 26 months ago
Mark Helpful (162)
No, it doesn't have the hanging problem. Samsung is now better. No hanging unless you fill the storage up to 99%.

Does it have any storage problems?
Yes. Only 8GB ROM is available in J2 2016. It is not sufficient for your mobile software update and to install applications.

It has only 8GB user memory, so it gives storage problem after installation of some applications.

Samsung is widely used and easy to use. Moto G is something a little hard to operate; only a qualified can operate this Moto G. I advise you go with Samsung J2 2016.
